Understanding the parallel system and the cross system

September 23rd 30th and October 7th (A three wee open level course  )

During these classes we look at how the two systems of walking establish themselves in the tango language. An understanding of them allows us to access wonderful variations in our dance with minimum effort.

Once the principles are clear we will work on different levels of vocabulary depending on your tango experience.

Three classes with the Practica £24

Tango Trilogy (A six week course)

October 21, 28, November 4, 11, 18, 25

During this course you will develop your skills in all three dances - tango, tango-vals and milonga. Many of the steps, step combinations and figures can be used in all three dances but the differences lie in the musical interpretations and in your ability to use variations. Vocabulary we'll work with during this course includes the four basic crosses, rebotes, changes of weight and dancing on the closed side of the embrace.

These classes are at open level and suitable for post-beginners to advanced. Those with more experience will be challenged with further combinations beyond the core class material. You will discover and enjoy more complicated variations adding for instance volcadas, boleos or sacadas.

During this hour teachers Sari and Jeff are available for you to ask any questions about your tango learning. We can revise material from the classes you have taken during the term. Or if you’ve learnt new steps in workshops elsewhere and you feel like they are escaping your body and mind, we can help you to retrieve them.

What to expect at our Saturday tango classes & workshops

The material we teach on this level is suitable for dancing both in an open embrace or the close embrace. Where appropriate we explain how to adapt the material to different embraces. Majority of our students prefer to develop their skills in the close embrace style especially. We introduce new vocabulary (as a continuation to our improver level), enhance musicality and expand the understanding of how tango elements can be varied and merged. You benefit from theses classes most if you dance on a regular basis.
